Question about Mitsubishi WS-55857 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

HD resolutions I just got an xbox 360. The tv says it is 1080hd, but I don't see how to set it to 1080i to work with the xbox 1080i resolution. Do I need something else to make it work? All I see in the advanced menu set up is 480p and 960i. When I try to get 480p to work with the xbox 360 480p resolution I get a blue screen. So far the only thing I've been able to get to work is the reqular widescreen TV resolution from the xbox 360. Please help. Is this the best I can expect?

    I figured it out. Only one of the 3 composite inputs on the rear of the tv supports 1080i. I plugged it in to this set of inputs and now it works fine. Sorry to bother you. thanks.

    sorry, but the right answer was to use the dtv component input instead of the component 1 input I had originally plugged into.

Your TV would have to be HD ready and will automatically set itself to 1080i, but if you go into the XBOX 360 console settings' the top menu enables you to change resolution, but if the x box does not recognise 1080i it will not show up. See if 720i shows up as this is still High Def. and also that 60 Hertz is the setting and not 50 hertz

    Just to add if you have connected all the blue, yellow, red, green and white plugs into your tv composite sockets, you will not need the yellow plug to be connected as this is for normal 480 viewing and not high definition.

    Well done!, we in the UK do not have the luxury of a DVI lead, we only get component leads with it as standard, although i did buy a vga and sound lead for a pc monitor.

Aquos screen blacks out with xbox 360 using Component Cables


Downloaded the updated firmware from the sharp website to a usb drive. Placed the drive in the TV and went to the update software option on the TV menu. Since the update, I no longer get the black-outs on the screen. I also put the resolution on the 360 back up to 1080p and it works great, even through the component cables.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def


Hi!
I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.


Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

360 video problem on HDTV


I need a little bit more info on the TV its an RCA what?,

In the mean time what you could try is finding someone with a HD tv and trying it out at there house so that you can single out if it is your system or the TV. This will help alot you can also try someone else's xbox 360 at your house on your tv to see if it is your AV cable / xbox360.

Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen - most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.

Can't get my TV to go to 1080i


Your tv is either 1080p or not 1080 compliant. Try 720p or you may be forced to keep it at 480

Hitachi 53SDX89BA


I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.

So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.

I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??
